Ringling College’s Sarasota Museum of Art/SMOA Seeks Donations of Reusable Trash for its 2014 “ARTmuse” Program
General Event Information
Artist Lisa Hoke is known for taking trash to treasure, transforming discarded, everyday materials into colorful, one-of-a-kind artworks that have been exhibited at major art museums and galleries. The artist will spend three weeks creating one of her innovative installations inside the historic Sarasota High School. SMOA invites area residents to participate in the project by donating their discarded cereal boxes, paper goods boxes, produce boxes, office supply boxes, shoe boxes, liquor boxes and more. It’s most important that the boxes be colorful, not ripped or crinkled. No plastic please. Drop-off days are October 19, November 9 and December 14 from 11am to 2pm at the historic Sarasota High School, 1001 S. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota. Docents are also sought for this project. To inquire about docent training, call 941-309-7662.
Sarasota’s first museum of modern and contemporary art will be a dynamic destination for exhibiting innovative and compelling visual art of the 20th and 21st centuries. A vital part of Sarasota’s rich cultural legacy, the museum will interweave exhibitions, educational programs and community outreach initiatives to engage a diverse audience and serve as a stimulating hub for creative discovery and discourse.
